IMPROVEMENT =■ - 

Is the spirit of the age. Farmers are 
looking for a fence that is substantial, 
easy to put up; — one that can be moved, 
will keep its shape, and cannot injure 
their stock. We have just what you are 
looking for. The Chain=Stay Fence is 

Handsome, Durable, Strong, 
and Cheap. 



'^ 



It is easily constructed, will last a life-time, and can be moved without injuring any of the material. Our 
fence is tightened with a ratchet, and is so constructed that any one wire can be tightened without moving 
stays out of place, or in any way injuring the fence. GET OUR PRICES on Stays, Wire, Ratchets, Iron 
Posts, and all other Fence Supplies. Address all correspondence to

"I say understandingly, that the young of our country who bring to Agriculture the education and intelligence, the industry 
.ad perseverance, essential to every other career, whether mercantile, industrial or professional, will in the course of the next twenty 
years, attain a far greater degree of material well being, on the average, than awaits them in any other calling.''— /eremia/i M. Rusk, 
late Secretary of Agriculture. 



What the Farmer Can Raise and What He 
Can Do with it in North Dakota. 



From our wheat we can make flour, the best in the 
world, and the flour will make bread, crackers, mac- 
caroni, etc. 

From our oats we can make the best kind of oat- 
meal. 

From our barley we can make splendid pearl bar- 
ley, etc. 

From our corn we can make starch, hominy and 
meal. 

From our beets we can make sugar and syrup. 

From potatoes we can make starch. 

From our flax fibre we can make linen, bagging, 
and binding twine, and from the seed make oil and 
cake. 

From our hemp we can make cordage. 



From our cows we can make butter and cheese, and 
beef and hides, and the hides can be made into boots 
and shoes. 

From our sheep we can get wool and mutton, and 
the wool can be spun, woven and made into clothing. 

From our hens we can gather eggs, from our geese 
we get feathers, and our turkeys make fine roasts. 

From our fields we can get peas, and various root 
crops to fatten hogs to make hams, bacon and lard. 

From our gardens we can gather celery, asparagus 
and many kinds of salad and edible roots and food 
plants. 

It is wonderful what we can raise and the uses to 
which the products of fields, gardens and pastures 
can be put. 



There is still free Government Land in North Dakota, and farms 

can be bought on the crop payment plan, as 

well as other forms of payments. 



'There is a prosperous settlement of Brethren in the vicinity of Cando, 
Towner Co., North Dakota. This is in the famous and fertile section known 
as the Turtle Mountain Country. Plenty of good land there for more Breth- 
ren. It is a country where the Eastern renter can easily become a land own- 
er, and improve his own property. For further information and publications,

THE BRETHREN'S ALMANAC FOR 1895* 



We take pleasure in presenting to the 
public our Almanac for 1895. ^^ think it 
will be as interesting and as instructive as 
any former edition, though the reading mat- 
ter may not be altogether of the same char- 
acter. Variety will be found a special feat- 
ure of the work, and in this respect we feel 
confident that it will prove valuable to all 
our readers. 

ANCIENT PORTRAITS OF PAUL AND PETER. 




The above is copied from the bottom of a 
gilded glass cup found in the catacombs of 
St. Sebastian at Rome. It is supposed to 
have belonged to the early part of the fourth 
century. The absence of the nimbus (glory 
or circle) about the heads of Peter and Paul, 
and its presence around the Savior's indicates 
the latter part of the third century, for the 
nimbus was generally used around the heads 
of saints in the latter half of the fourth cen- 
tury. Tertullian, who wrote about A. D. 200, 
speaks of glass cups being used in Commun- 
ion services during his time, as also does 



Eusebius, who wrote in the first half of the 
fourth century. In the picture the Savior is 
represented as presenting a crown of life to 
each of the two apostles. 

How well these portraits represent the ap- 
pearance of Paul and Peter we have no way 
of knowing. One can readily see, however, 
that the artists made no effort to bring out 
any features respecting the Savior, but great 
pains were taken with the portraits of the 
two apostles. This leads us to conclude 
that the artist may have been guided by 
something more than imagination. Possibly 
he may have had access to older portraits. 
It is, however, not to ancient pictures that 
we look for our impressions of these inspired 
men. It is the mind that makes the man, 
and this we get of Paul or Peter by a care- 
ful reading of the New Testament. To us 
the picture of Paul's soul, obtained from his 
writings, is of more value than any portrait 
of his outward appearance. 



LIME JUICE FOR SCURVY. 



Probably few persons outside the indus- 
tries actually concerned are aware that under 
the provisions of the British lime juice act 
the Board of Trade are empowered to com- 
pel the ships' captains to serve out to their 
crew a fluid ounce of lime juice per day, and 
to hold the masters responsible for the ac- 
tual swallowing of the dose by the men. 
Any case of recalcitrancy on the part of one 
of the crew has to be entered into the offi- 
cial log book, and in case these precautions 
are neglected the master is liable to a heavy 
penalty. Thanks to the provisions of the 
act, scurvy has been almost stamped out. 
This juice is obtained from limes, a fruit 
that grows in parts of Florida. It resem- 
bles a lemon, only it is much smaller. The 
trees are very prolific, but too tender to 
stand even a heavy frost.

CENTENNIAL ALMANAC FOR 1895. 

SATURN IS THB RULING PLANET THIS YKAR. 



The Year in Generai,.— Will be mostly cold 
and damp, even if it should be very dry at certain 
times; it will, however, generally be considered a 
cold, wet, unpleasant year. 

Spring. — The beginning of April will be some- 
what warm yet very unpleasant till in May; after- 
wards if the days are pleasant and the nights cool, 
a severe drought will follow; notwithstanding there 
will be some rainy weather. Grass and vegetables 
will start late. 

Summer.— In the beginning it will be wet; fol- 
lowed by great heat and drought, so that summer 



crops will suffer. Very destructive storms of thun- 
der, lightning, and hail will visit different sections. 

Autumn. — Will be cold and damp; early freezing, 
followed by heavy thunderstorms. After the mid- 
dle of October, cold weather will set in. December 
will be damp, but somewhat pleasant. 

Winter.— Will continue till near April. In the 
beginning it will be damp with heavy rains. To- 
wards the end of December winter will set in, with 
deep snow and cold, and continue long; hence the 
necessity of preparing firewood and feed. 

Wind and Storms.— There will be some very 
severe storms, with thunder and lightning.

WAYSIDE THOUGHTS. 



Recently a phonograph was found at the 
residence of the late Cardinal Manning, and 
upon putting the same in operation, the fol- 
lowing solemn message was delivered in the 
Cardinal's well-known voice: *'I hope that 
no word of mine, written or spoken in my 
life, will be found to have done harm to my 
fellow-men when I am dead!" Ah, these 
words of ours! Winged with love they lift 
us high as the heavens; freighted with hatred 
they drag us to the bottomless abyss! 

* * * 

" Reform " is the cry of the day. You 
can hardly speak to anyone who is not ready 
to work a reform that will bring about an 
Edenic state and transform our criminal 
classes into beings akin to angels. An aged 
brother, now gone to his long home, at one 
time gave utterance to the following words, 
which deeply impressed me: "Let me give 
you a piece of advice on this matter of re- 
form. The best reform is to make one per- 
so?i better, — one with whom you are well ac- 
quainted. I hardly need to tell you who 
that person should be." I understood, and 
since then I have often thought that, after all, 



the brother spoke wisely and truthfully, — 
perhaps more so than he thought at the 
time. It is the only feasible way to work a 
reform that is thorough and lasting. The 
Gospel idea of Christian influence, represent- 
ed by the figure of a light, of salt, and of leav^ 
en, is ever suggestive of a power developed 
within working outward, and only by achange 
within will a true reform ever be established. 
Legislation may force a man to be honest, 
temperate and otherwise acceptable, at least 
to some extent, but it will never reform him 
as he may be, if, by the grace of God, he 
has so changed his heart that he wills to do 
good by free choice of his own better self 
and thus influences others. 

* * * 

Life's aspirations are ever higher than 
what we accomplish, and yet it is better to 
aim high, even if we do fail to attain, than 
to aim low and accomplish nothing. It was 
Goethe who said: "When we are young we 
would fain build wonderful temples to the 
honor of the Great Father; but at the last 
we are glad if we have dug away some of the 
rubbish at our feet." Clearing the ground 
that others may build, is not in vain. The 
lowly work may, indeed, not be the fulfill- 
ment of the dreams of our youth, yet, if we 
serve God's purpose in our creation, and do 
faithfully and bravely life's duties, the most 
glorious mission of life has been attained, — 
God has been honored through our life of 
unselfish service of love. 

* * * 

Naturalists assure us that bees, fed on a 
mixture of brandy and honey will cease to 
work, attack other swarms, plunder their 
hives, etc. We have seen the same tenden- 
cy in those who partake of the fatal cup,— 
and that, too, after knowing full well the 
consequences. What shall we say of man's 
boasted intelligence, of his all-conquering 
will-power, when he runs headlong into de- 
struction without even exercising due control 
over himself to overcome the evil habit and 
stop in his wild career?

gin to plan for spring fencing. Any farmer can build the . 
CHAIN-STAY SMOOTH-WIRE FENCE, so simple is it in ■ 
construction. (See advertisement on first inside page of this 
Almanac.) 

Some years ago a young lady, just pre- 
vious to starting out upon the arduous work 
of a foreign missionary, met England's belov- 
ed queen, Victoria. The queen had known 
the young lady's mother in former days, and 
was naturally solicitous about the daughter 
and the great work of her life. In her 
parting words she said: " My young friend, 
as a missionary you will meet many people 
towards whom you will feel some aversion; 
your cultured taste will be shocked by 
coarseness and impropriety. Let me en- 
treat you to search for the good which is to 
be found somewhere in every human soul. 
Cherish it and, take my word for it, in nur- 
turing the good and noble, the base and ig- 
noble will disappear." The missionary went 
to the field of labor, and often, when cour- 
age failed and she was sick at'heart because 
no sympathetic heart afforded her comfort, 
she was cheered by the thought that the 
words of the Queen would yet prove true. 
As the years passed by, her labors brought 
forth a harvest of golden grain for the Mas- 
ter, and the people, — whom she had trans- 
formed by the power of the Gospel and a 
heart of love, — called her " The Angel of 
Mercy." There is a lesson in this that 
reaches every one. Following the advice of 



the Queen we may all reach some soul, pre- 
cious in the sight of God. Searching for the 
good will clear away the rubbish, and what 
we thought to be repulsive, will shine out in 
the brightness of a diadem, — a jewel for 
the King of kings. l. a. p. 



THE CHICAGO CHURCH. 



At 183 Hastings Street stands the Breth- 
ren meeting house, the front of which is 
shown in this cut. The house is small, but 




it is cosy, well located, and answers the 
purpose for which it is intended. Here the 
members meet every Sunday morning and 
evening for religious services. Bro. W. R. 
Miller is their regular preacher. Bro. Ed- 
ward Frantz has rendered him some valua- 
ble assistance during the last few years. 
Occasionally one of our ministers, who hap- 
pens in the city over Sunday, calls and 
preaches for the Brethren. They always 
enjoy visits of this character. Any of our 
people cannot help feeling at home in this 
little church.

To the rear is the building in which sister 
Alice Boone conducts the Children's Mis- 
sion. Here a number of little folks meet 
every day to receive religious instruction 
and other training so necessary for children 
in a great, wicked city like Chicago. Also 
regular Sunday school services are held in 
the church every Sunday morning. The 
members help gather in the children, and 
most of them take an active part in the 
work. If you are in the city over Sunday, do 
not fail to attend these services. 



A VICIOUS HABIT. 



The members of the family were all seat- 
ed on the cool gallery on SundaJ^ afternoon. 
A brother came in and said to the father of 
the family, " Well, how do you like the 
preacher? " " I do not like him at all. He 
can't preach worth a cent. Now, to-day he 
kept holding on and on for at least an hour, 
and it was all sound without sense. I am 
out of all patience. The bishop must send 
us another preacher." After awhile the 
children are at play. James says: ** Who is 
he that comes?" John says: "That's old 
Brother A. He can't preach worth a cent. 



I wish he'd keep away from here. I do de- 
spise him. Father says he is just breaking 
our church down. We hear the other boys 
bragging on their preacher all the time, and 
ours is a perfect old crank." That boy had 
heard his father talk, and so far as he was 
concerned the preacher's influence was gone. 
How often is this the case! How unwise 
and unthoughtful for parents thus to act! 
If you do not like your preacher, do not let 
your children know it. It will certainly de- 
stroy his influence for good over them; and 
not only so, it will degrade and depreciate 
the ministry, and cause your children to 
hold the sacred oflice in contempt, and step 
by step drive them from the church, God, 
and all good. Speak evil of no man, espe- 
cially magistrates and ministers. — Alabama 
Advocate. 

HAIRY PEOPLE OF AINU, JAPAN. 



Fresh and important information on the 
Ainu, the strange, hairy people who inhabit 
the island of Yezo, in the Japan empire, is 
given in the modest volume lately published 
by John Murray. It is written by A. H. 
Savage Landor, a grandson of the poet, and 
a clever artist. He traveled all over the is- 
land, and lived among the Ainu for five 
months. He has illustrated his book with 
drawinge of utensils, houses and landscapes, 
and with portraits of the people. He be- 
lieves that the pure Ainu do not number 
more than 8,000, though the population, in- 
cluding half-breeds, is estimated by the Jap- 
anese to be from 15,000 to 17,000. 

Mr. Landor made his observations in a 
scientific manner, taking measurements of 
both men and women. He found the aver- 
age height of ten pure Ainu, five men and 
five women, to be 62^ inches for the men 
and 58^ inches for the women; with the 
arms outstretched, the men measured 65^ 
inches from finger tip to finger tip, the wom- 
en 61^ inches. 

He makes quite clear the total dissimilari- 
ty between the Ainu and the Mongolian.

YOU FEEL YOUNG AGAIN ^^ ^^^^ T. 

. _^__________ proaches, but 

you will not live long enough to outlive the CHAIN-STAY 
SMOOTH-WIRE FENCE. It doesn't wear out. (See adver- 
tisement on first inside page of this Almanac.) 

The eye is Caucasian in its form and setting; 
the iris is light brown or gray. The com- 
plexion is a light reddish brown; the hair is 
generally black and curly in adults, though 
in one section of the island men were noticed 
who had hair and beard of reddish color. 

He thus describes the typical face: '* When 
seen full face the forehead is narrow and 
sharply sloped backward, the cheek bones 
are prominent, and the nose is hooked, 
slightly flattened, and broad, with wide, 
strong nostrils. The mouth is generally 
large, with thick, firm lips, and the under lip 
well developed. The space from the nose 
to the mouth is extremely long, \vhile the 
chin, which is rather round, is comparatively 
short and not very prominent. Thus the 
face has the shape of a short oval. The 
profile is concave, and the mouth and eye- 
brows are prominent In the 

supraorbital region the central boss is ex- 
tremely well marked; also the brow ridges, 
which, however, are»slightly less conspicu- 
ous than the central boss. The ears are us- 
ually large, flat, and simply developed." 

The sense of hearing is extremely acute, 
as is also that of smell. They know a Jap- 
anese from an Englishman by his odor, and 
yet they do not seem to notice the foul 



odors of their own persons and dwellings, 
where filth and vermin prevail. 

The Ainu women do the hard work and 
the men are fond of hunting and riding on 
their ponies. They always pull a heavy ob- 
ject toward them, rather than push it from 
them, and they use teeth, feet, and toes to 
help the fingers, preferring to pull with the 
teeth rather than the hands, when a load is 
heavy. In all these movements they are 
like the anthropoid apes. They show little 
evidence of emotion. Mr. Landor once 
made a man **roar" with surprise and pleas- 
ure; but he never saw one laugh. They 
seem to have neither sense of shame nor of 
fear. 

On the whole, Mr. Landor's observations 
lead him to believe that the Ainu are the 
most primitive of the northern Asiatic races, 
and that they may have originated from the 
same stock as did the northern Europeans.

FLORIDA. 



There are now two meeting-houses in 
Florida. Eleven years ago there was not 
one member residing in the State. One 
house is at Keuka, on the bank of a charm- 
ing lake of clear water, as soft as snow water. 
The entrance to the lake is gradual, the bot- 
tom is covered with white sand, and here is 
one of the most delightful places to perform 
the rite of baptism that could be desired. 
There one can be baptized in water that is 
clean indeed. Along the banks are many 
cosy residences and beautiful orange groves. 
Many of the people come to meeting in 
their row-boats. Il is a pleasing sight to 
see a half dozen or more boats, coming up 
the lake on Sunday morning, filled with par- 
ents and children on their way to Sunday 
school and meeting. 

The other meetinghouse is near Haw- 
thorne, twelve miles away. It is an old set- 
tled community where people have lived 
and prospered for fifty years. In this vicin- 
ity are some of the most delightful orange

groves in the State. One sees them here 
and there as he drives through the pine 
woods. The congregations that worship in 
these houses are not generally large, but they 
enjoy their Sunday schools and meetings 
very much. 

COMMUNION WINE. 



For Communion purposes the unferment- 
ed juice of the grape should be used on all 
occasions. If properly prepared it will keep 
for years, and is absolutely non-intoxicating. 
The writer has used it in 'his family for 
years. Press the juice from ripe grapes in any 
manner convenient. Some cook the grapes 
a little, adding a pint of water to each gal- 
lon of grapes, and press the juice out 
through a coarse sack. Strain the juice 
well, then heat and can it the same as fruit. 
The common glass fruit jar is the best thing 
in which to preserve it. Bottles will also 
do if well corked, and dipped into melted 
wax. Wine thus made is the pure " fruit of 
the vine," and there is no reason why it 
should not be used on all Communion oc- 



casions. 



A CHILD'S RIGHTS. 



Everyone knows the capacity of a child 
for asking questions, but it is not everyone 
who recognizes that the child has any natur- 
al rights in the matter. A writer in an ex- 
change says a child has a right to ask ques- 
tions and to be fairly answered; not to be 
snubbed as if he were guilty of an imperti- 
nence, nor ignored as though his desire for 
information were of no consequence, nor 
misled as if it did not signify whether true 
or false impressions were made upon his 
mind. He has a right to be taught every- 
thing he desires to learn, and to be made 
certain when asked-for information is with- 
held, that it is only deferred till he is older 
and better prepared to receive it. Answer- 
ing a child's questions is sowing the seeds 
of its future character.

In Psalms 164: 19, we read, **He appoint- 
ed the moon for seasons." In i86o I re- 
member to have read the statement of an 
officer in the French army, who said that 
the moon seemed to have little influence 
over the weather until the fourth day of the 
moon, and then whatever weather prevailed 
the fourth, fifth, and sixth days, would like- 
ly prevail during that moon. I have ob- 
served for thirty-two years that this is the 
best indication of the weather known to me. 
I have noticed it in both wet and dry weath- 
er, and I cannot now help feeling that the 
Psalmist as well as the French officer had a 
correct idea of the moon's influence over the 
weather. 

TO RICH PEOPLE. 



Dr. Pearson has written a quaint little 
pamphlet entitled, " A Prescription for Rich 
Patients," in which, among other things, he 
says: " I have observed that inherited prop- 
erty does not usually do much good to those

the matter of put-

that get it, being more often a curse than a 
blessing. Hence I say to rich men, Don't 
leave vast wealth to your children or other 
relatives, for such a form of benevolence is 
not the best. A second thing that I have 
learned is that it is the wisest course for a 
man of means to be his own administrator 
and to dispose of a large share of his prop- 
erty in his own lifetime. This plan will pre- 
vent his heirs from fighting about it, will 
keep much of it from the lawyers, will en- 
able the giver to see what his gifts can do, 
will show him in the light of one good deed 
what is the next best thing to do, and will 
stir up some others who have money to go 
and do likewise." 



THE LARGEST FARM, 



The largest farm in this country and prob- 
ably in the world is situated in the south- 
western part of Louisiana. Its area is 100 
miles north and south and twenty-five miles 
east and west. It was purchased in 1883 by 
a syndicate of Northern capitalists by whom 
it is still operated. At the time of its pur- 
chase its 1,500,000 acres was a vast pasture 
for the cattle belonging to a few dealers in 



that country. Now it is divided into pas- 
ture stations or ranches, existing every six 
miles. The fencing is said to have cost 
about ;^50,ooo. The land is best adapted to 
rice, sugar, corn, and cotton. Steam power 
is used almost exclusively. There is not a 
single draft horse on the entire place, if we 
except those used by the herders of cattle; 
of which there are 16,000 head on the place. 
The Southern Pacific Railway runs for thir- 
ty-six miles through the farm. The com- 
pany have three steamboats operating on 
the waters of the estate of which 300 miles 
are navigable. It has also a shipyard, bank, 
rice-mill and an icehouse. 



STRAWBERRIES vs. QOUT. 



Strawberries have for a long time had a 
well-established reputation as a remedy for 
the gout. Dr. A. George, in the A?i?uiles de 
la Societe Horticole de VAube, tells us that in 
the last century the great botanist Linnaeus, 
who was gouty, had much cause to extol the 
action of the fruit in this disease. At this 
epoch, when uric acid was unknown, he had 
the prescience that the chemical cause of 
gout was identical with that of gravel, and he 
expressed himself in a picturesque manner 
to one of his friends when he wrote to him: 
" I have the gout and you have the gravel; 
we have married two sisters." The only 
method that Linnaeus found of easing his 
gout was by an abundant use of this fruit, 
to which he has made a graceful acknowl- 
edgment in his writings. 



EARLY RI5INQ. 



More nonsense is talked about getting up 
early than probably on any other subject. 
The proper time to get up is when the sleep- 
er is rested — neither before nor after. 

There is no more virtue in the air between 
six and eight than between eight and ten A. 
M. Of course if anyone goes to bed at half- 
past nine at night, he does not want to rise 
so late as half-past nine the next day.

advertisement on first inside page of this Almanac.) 

Eight hours' sleep is, as a rule, sufficient ev- 
en for the hardest worker. 

The safest sleeping rules are to leave the 
bedroom window open two inches at the top 
in mild weather, for the purpose of venti- 
lation and to get up as soon as the first good 
wake comes. 

After from six to eight hours' rest the 
average man and woman becomes restless. 
The brain regains its energy, sleep is broken, 
and for all practical purposes the night's 
rest is over. This is the time to rise, and 
for a man to take, if he can stand it, a cold 
hand or sponge bath, commencing the work 
of the world again with the, finest and 
healthiest stimulant which he can enjoy. 



OUR MISSION AND TRACT WORK. 



In such a short article only the more im- 
portant points of the work can be noticed. 
First, then, to be considered is the funds. 
These are separated as follows: 

I. Home and European Fund. At first 
the European fund was kept separate from 
the Home fund, but after a time the contri- 
butions were not sufficient to meet the de- 
mands of the European field and it was com- 



bined with the Home fund. This fund is 
used to do all the mission work by the com- 
mittee in both America and Europe. Also 
whatever assistance is given to the building 
of meetinghouses, or to Districts to carry 
on their work, is taken from this fund. 
Since the organization of the mission work 
the committee has received over $60,000, of 
which over $14,000.00 has been donated 
towards building sixty-two meetinghouses; 
about $5,000.00 has been loaned on meeting- 
houses at a low rate of interest, and the re- 
mainder has been used for mission work di- 
rect. During the ten years preceding April 
I, 1894, the traveling expenses of the com- 
mittee to meet four times a year, as directed 
by Annual Meeting, is $702.02, or an average 
of a little over $70 per year. 

2. The Book and Tract Fund. This is 
used for the publication and distribution of 
tracts. This important factor in church 
work has just come under the direction of 
the Committee the past year and hence little 
can be said of the extent of its past work, 
more than that it has done much good in 
opening up the work of the church in new 
places. 

3. The Mission and Tract Fund. This 
fund has been created to meet the desires 
of such contributors as wish to have their 
money put to the best possible use, leaving 
the Committee to decide. From this fund 
the Committee draws for either mission or 
tract work as the needs demand. 

4. The India Mission Fund. This is a com- 
paratively new work for the church, yet it 
bids fair of being one of the most im- 
portant. The contributions have been quite 
encouraging since it was begun, and one of 
its most pleasing features is that this fund is 
supported by every District in the Brother- 
hood. Frequently persons do not know 
where to send their donations for the differ- 
ent funds, and for their benefit it is here stat- 
ed that all money, of whatever nature, intend- 
ed for the General Missionary and Tract 
Committee, to^b^u$ed under ^nyo^e of these

funds, or to be used otherwise, should be sent 
to the Secretary of the Committee, Galen B. 
Royer, Mt. Morris, 111. He will receipt for 
the same and also acknowledge the same 
monthly in the Gospd Messenger. 

Sometimes brethren say they would sup- 
port the mission work if they knew that 
their money was applied as directed. To 
reply to this it is necessary to say only this: 
Annual Meeting causes the books of the Com- 
mittee to be examined every year by three 
competent brethren who have no connection 
with the work, and they report their work to 
the Annual Meeting. They examine all the 
receipts, comparing them with tlie acknowl- 
edgments made in the Gospel Messenger; al- 
so all the expenditures. The Missionary 
Committee then publishes a report of their 
work, including the receipts and expendi- 
tures, in the Annual Meeting Minutes, and 
these are supposed to reach every member 
of the Brotherhood. Can the Committee do 
more to assure the contributors that their 
money has been used as directed? It is 
every member's duty to look carefully over 
the work of the Committee and know what 
is being done. 

Interest in mission work of the church is 



growing: it is bound to grow if the church 
means to keep the spirit of Christ, for His 
was decidedly a missionary spirit. The com- 
mittee believes the time is coming when her 
funds will be much greater than they now 
are. Brethren and sisters, having been blessed 
with this world's goods and having a desire 
to do all the good they can, are making the 
Committee heir to a part or all of their es- 
tates. And while great confidence should 
not be placed in wills, yet a form is here giv- 
en for those wishing to give property that 
way. 

Form of a Legacy. 

I also give and bequeath to the General Missionary 
and Tract Committee of the German Baptist Breth- 
ren church dollars, for the 

purposes of the Committee, as specified in their char- 
ter. And I hereby direct my executor (or executors) 
to pay said sum to the Secretary of said Committee, 

taking his receipt therefor, within months 

after my decease. 

Form of a Devise of Real Estate. 

I also give, bequeath, and devise to the General 
Missionary and Tract Committee of the German 
Baptist Brethren Church one certain lot of land, with 
the buildings thereon standing (here describe the 
premises with exactness and particularity), to beheld 
and possessed by the said Committee, their succes- 
sors and assigns forever, for the purposes specified in 
their charter. 

But to those who wish to make sure of the 
transfer, while living, thereisanother way by 
which the Committee may own the property 
and the individual retain benefit accruing 
therefrom while living. Some of the breth- 
ren are taking advantage of this plan and 
during the past year the committee has come 
into possession of over ^12,500.00 worth of 
property on these conditions. Any inform- 
ation on these points will be cheerfully giv- 
en upon application. 

Every means is being used to do the most 
good with the funds at the command of the 
Committee, and while at some times they run 
low, yet it is earnestly hoped that every 
brother and sister will lend, — yea, return to 
the Lord a portion of that wherewith he 
blessed him. One cent per week in the

People are now wanting to buy their winter's wood. So pull 
down your old, dilapidated rail fences, sell the rails and invest the 
proceeds in CHAIN-STAY SMOOTH-WIRE FENCE. Your 
rails will pay for the wire. (See advertisement on first inside 
page of this Almanac.) 

hands of the Committee would make a fund 
sufficient to quadruple the present work of 
the Committee. 



FOR MOTHERS AND WIVES. 



Here is something that mothers and 
wives may do well to read every week in the 
year. It is the story that the learned Canon 
Farrar tells of his mother. There are those 
who perhaps cannot spend the one hour, 
but if they can be alone with God and the 
Bible just one half hour, or even but fifteen 
minutes, they will gather much strength for 
the trials of the day. My motlier's habit 
was every day, immediately after breakfast, 
to withdraw for an hour to her own room, 
and to spend that hour in reading the Bible, 
in meditation and prayer. From that hour 
as from a pure fountain, she drew the 
strength and sweetness which enabled her 
to fulfill all her duties, and to remain un- 
ruffled by worries and pettishnesses which 
are so often the "intolerable trial of narrow 
neighborhoods. As I think of her life, and 
of all it had to bear, I see the absolute tri- 
umph of Christian grace in the lovely ideal 
of a Christian lady. I never saw her temper 



disturbed; I never heard her speak one word 
of anger, of calumny, or of idle gossip; I 
never observed in her any sign of a single 
sentiment unbecoming to a soul which had 
drunk of the river of the water of life, and 
which had fed upon manna in the barren 
wilderness. The world is the better for the 
passage of such souls across its surface. 
They may seem to be as much forgotten as 
the drops of rain which fall into the barren 
sea, but each drop adds to the volume of 
refreshing and purifying waters. " The heal- 
ing of the world is in its nameless saints. 
A single star seems nothing, but a thousand 
scattered stars break up the night and make 
it beautiful." 

FINGER NAILS. 



Clean, well-kept finger nails are a sign of 
good breeding. If you soak your finger 
nails in warm water a short time before trim- 
ming them, they are not so liable to break. 
Trim them often, but not much at a time. 



4JNL0VABLE WOMEN. 



There are three kinds of women who are 
of doubtful value as acquaintances — those 
who do not love children, who do not love 
flowers, and who openly declare that they 
do not like other women. There is some- 
thing wanting in them, and in all probability 
its place is supplied by some unlovely trait. 
Men may smile and jest a little over the 
tenderness lavished on a baby, says a 
thoughtful writer in " Worthingtoti s Mag- 
azine!' but, after all, the prattle every wom- 
anly woman involuntarily breaks into at the 
sight of the tiny beings is very sweet to 
masculine ears. It was the first language 
they ever knew, and, in spite of the jest or 
smile, the sweetest on wife's or sweetheart's 
lips. They may laugh, too, at the little gar- 
den tools, which seem like playthings in 
their strength; but in their hearts they as-

FENCE this season and everywhere it is coming to the front. 
(See advertisement on first inside page of this Almanac.) 

And as for the woman who does not care for 
her own sex, and boldly avows it, she creates 
only an unfavorable impression against her 
own self for a sweeping condemnation of a 
sex which contains innumerable examples 
of all that is beautiful and worthy in human 
character. — Christian Herald. 



LONGEVITY OF FEMALES. 



The Medical Record says woman has the 
advantage of man as regards longevity, she 
suffers less from accidents, injuries, and 
many forms of disease; she is, in fact, more 
tenacious than man of the limited enjoy- 
ments allowed her. Dr. Brandreth Symonds 
has collected and studied a large number of 
statistics to illustrate this fact (^American 
jfournalofthe Medical Sciences^. The com- 
parative mortality of the sexes at different 
ages shows that in the first year of life the 
mortality of the female is much less than 
that of the male, being at birth 92'64 per 
1,000 as against ii2'8o, and at the end of the 
year 31*87 as against 35'08. This difference 
continues up to the fourth year. From 5 to 
12 the female mortality is greater than that 
of the male, being at the latter period 3"56 
for males arid 4'28 for females. At the age 



of 46 the male mortality equals that of the 
female, the latter having been up to this 
time slightly in excess. During the years 
46 to 56, the period of the climacteric, the 
male mortality gains rapidly on the female, 
being 6*32 per annum for the one and only 
3'47 for the other. Hence the climacteric is 
really a much more serious time for man 
than for woman. After 56 the female mor- 
tality gains on that of the male, but is al- 
ways slightly below it. Woman has not on- 
ly a less mortality, but a greater longevity 
than man. There is, also, a plurality of fe- 
male births. 

WHEN A WOMAN LOVES. 



When a woman loves a man she lives for 
him, writes Edward W. Bok in '* At Home 
With the Editor" in the February Ladies' 
Home Journal. From the moment she awak- 
ens in the morning until she closes her eyes 
at night a loving wife's thoughts are of her 
husband. All day she performs her duties 
with the thought of his pleasure uppermost 
in her mind, and his image in her heart. 
Nearly everything she does is with the 
thought of him. If she puts a dainty touch 
to a room she instinctively wonders what he 
will think of it when he comes home. If 
she buys an article in the shops that he 
will see, close beside her own preference for 
it is the thought whether he will like it. 
When she plans the dinner his tastes are 
regarded first. What would he like best is 
her constant thought. She dresses her 
children, having in mind a little suggestion 
or thought which he may have dropped days, 
yes, even months ago. His color becomes 
her color; his taste her taste. And even 
if she does not always personally approve of 
a certain thing she buys it or she does it be- 
cause she feels or thinks it will please him. 
Scores and scores of times have I seen wives 
lay aside their own preferences willingly and 
cheerfully because their husbands liked 
something else better. His coming home is 
to her the event of the day, and it is her 
pleasure to prepare for it in some way. No

matter how tired the head, how ill the body 
during the day, she tries to look cheerful 
when her husband comes home. She feels 
that she has something to dress for as his 
home-coming hour approaches. She likes 
to lay aside the house-gown she has worn all 
day, and don a fresh dress for his coming. 
It is a pleasure to her to wear the gown for 
which, at some time or other, he may have 
expressed a preference; in a little touch 
which she deftly gives the table; in some fa- 
vorite dish of his prepared by her own 
hands; in the inviting manner in which his 
house-coat and slippers are placed ready for 
his donning; in the convenient spot in which 
he finds his evening paper, ready for his en- 
joyment; in short, in the thousand touches 
which only occur to a woman who finds her 
delight in the pleasure which she can give 
the man she loves. 



THE BAPTISM OF JESUS. 



John the Baptist was sent as a forerunner 
of Jesus. That is, he went before proclaim- 
ing to the people that the long promised 
Messiah was at hand, and that to him all 
the world should look for salvation. When 
about thirty years old John commenced 



preaching in the Wilderness of Judah, and 
baptized all those who accepted his teach- 
ing. While thus engaged, Jesus came to 
him at the river Jordan and demanded bap- 
tism. 




At first John thought himself unworthy to 
immerse one whose life had been so spot- 
less, and one of whom he had such an exalt- 
ed opinion. After Jesus told him that it 
was their duty to fulfill all righteousness, he 
consented and baptized the Son of God in the 
River Jordan. Our picture shows them com- 
ing up out of the water after the rite has 
been performed. This baptism took place 
a few miles north of where the Jordan emp- 
ties into the Dead Sea. The place is yearly 
visited by many pilgrims who desire to see 
the sacred stream where Jesus was buried in 
baptism, and arose from the watery grave to

enter upon the mission for which he came 
into the world. 

His example in the river Jordan has led 
millions to follow his footsteps in baptism. 
When they go down into the water, and 
kneel as in the act of prayer, and then are 
immersed into the name of the Father, and 
into the name of the Son, and into the name 
of the Holy Ghost, they can then feel that 
they have truly been buried with Christ in 
baptism, and are now prepared to enter up- 
on a new and better life. 



GIVE THE BABY A DRINK. 



" Heaven pity the babies in hot weather." 
Says the N. Y. Recorder, *' The other day, on 
a suburban train, a puny baby was wailing 
and fretting, to the annoyance of the passen- 
gers and the distress of the mother. 

** ' Perhaps baby wants a drink,' suggested 
a sweet-faced woman. She took a tiny cup 
from her satchel and brought some water to 
the crying child, who drank eagerly and 
went to sleep promptly." 

" * Do you never give it a drink of water? ' 
she asked the mother. 

*' * No, shure,' was the reply, * but she has 
a sup of gin now and thin' 



"You will meet just such crass ignorance 
all around you. The other day, in a small 
store on Columbus avenue, a wan, tired 
woman, with a baby in her arms, and another 
clinging to her dress, was waiting on cus- 
tomers. Both children were fretting and 
worrying in a pitiable manner. The mother 
said the hot weather made them worry, but 
she did not seem to take note of the fact 
that both were covered with *' prickly heat.* 
A lady pointed it out to the mother and 
asked her what she did for it. 

"* Nothing,' she said, in a most pathetic 
manner, but she received the advice kindly 
and with apparent thankfulness, when told 
to bathe them with a teaspoonful of baking- 
soda in the water." 

Mothers will eat salt and pepper and 
spices till their milk is like brine, and then 
their children will fret and worry. Or they 
will feed their children salt pork or salt fish, 
until they are poisoned and feverish, and 
then will neglect to give them water, or per- 
haps stuff them with food or milk, or per- 
haps ** a sup of gin," and will wonder that 
they sicken and die. A baby is three-quar- 
ters warm water. Give him plenty of water 
and a moderate supply of food, and he will 
crow and grow and live. — Safeguard. 



COACH VARNISH, 



Every family should keep on hand 2l 
small bottle of coach varnish. Any fresh 
cut, tied up with this varnish will heal inside 
of a few days. It is good for both man and 
beast. There is nothing better for a fresh 
barbed wire cut. It is not good for old- 
sores. 

COST OF WAR AND EDUCATION. 



There is no better proof, says the Jour^ 
nal of Education, of the essential barbarism 
of even the most civilized nations of the 
world than is afforded by a comparison of 
the money they expend for the maintenance 
of physical supremacy as against the expen-

diture for mental improvement. Though it 
may be assumed that brain is better than 
brawn, there is no evidence that statesmen 
so regard it. In some tables recently com- 
piled, the amount per capita expended by 
various governments for military and edu- 
cational purposes is set down as follows:

5AIS OR FORERUNNERS. 



Among the many things that interest the 
traveler in the ** Lands of the Bible," none 
make such deep impressions upon the mind 
as do the ancient customs of Bible times still 
adhered to by the people. To see women 
grinding at the mill as Christ saw them so 
long ago, to see the Shepherd leading his 
flock and calling his sheep by name as the 
Shepherds did when the Master walked over 
the hills of Judea, to see the people go to 
the housetops to pray as Peter went to the 
top of the tanner's house by the sea in the 
olden time, to see the potter at his wheel as 
Isaiah beheld him seven centuries before the 
Son of God was born into the world, and to 
see men making bricks and watering their 
gardens with their feet, as Moses saw them 
more than thirty-three hundred years ago, is 
to fill the beholder with wonder and surprise 
that through all the long centuries that have 
passed away since Moses, Isaiah and Christ 
lived on the earth the people have clung 
with remarkable pertinacity to these ancient 
customs. 

To me it seems, as it has seemed to oth- 



ers, that the hand of God is observable in 
this condition of things. Not only has he 
preserved in the buried cities of the Bible 
abundant evidence of the truth of his book, 
but in these ancient customs, kept alive all 
these centuries, he gives us, as it were, living 
witnesses testifying to the truth of the Bible. 
One among the many ancient customs 
still kept alive in the East is that of men 




running before the carriages of important 
passengers. How well I remember the im- 
pression made upon my mind when I first 
heard the story of Elijah and the priests of 
Baal. How my youthful imagination was 
fired as I heard of the grand old man stand- 
ing alone at Carmel amidst the multitude. 
Alone, but not alone, for God was with him. 
Then, when the victory came and vengeance 
had been meted out to the idolatrous 
priests, he hurried the king away that he 
might escape the coming storm of wind and 
rain. "And Ahab rode, and went to Jez- 



Brethreris Family Almanac.

reel. And the hand of the Lord was on Eli- 
jah; and he girded up his loins, and ran be- 
fore Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel." 

When in the city of Cairo two years ago I 
saw the old custom of men running before 
horses many times repeated. Before the 
carriages of the ruler of Egypt and of the 
nobility ran two strong fleet footmen with 
bared limbs dressed in the fanciful costume 
shown in the accompanying engraving. They 
are strong of limb, quick in action, and run 
with a springing step, and easy, graceful mo- 
tion that keeps them ahead of the fast trot- 
ting horses. By day they carry a wand 
in the hand, and at night a torch. They 
warn those who are walking in the street to 
get out of the way, crying out incessantly, 
'• Look out to the front," ** To the left," " To 
the right." These cries are mingled with 
good-humored abuse of those who are slow 
to heed the warning given. 

Their powers of endurance are wonderful, 
and they run before the horses, going at full 
speed incredible distances, and that, too, 
without apparent fatigue. But I was in- 
formed that they are short-lived, and that 
after a few years' service as sais, they fail 
in health and sink into early graves. 



A VISIT TO THE MAMERTINE PRISONS. 



There are so many places of interest in 
Rome that one hardly knows which one to 
write about when he wants to say something 
of one of them. Still, some places impress 
one more than others when he is in a city so 
full of what is old, a city whose very name 
recalls so much to the person who is ac- 
quainted with her history. Such a place 
are the Mamertine Prisons. We visited 
them one afternoon. They are situated at 
the upper end of the Forum. The entrance 
to them is through a gloomy church in 
which we found many worshipers. Of 
course they werd Catholics. Some were 
kneeling in prayer, some were before a cru- 
cifix, and some sat with gaze fixed upon 



some saint. All seemed absorbed in their 
devotions and paid no attention to the vis- 
itors. The church is called S. Pietro in Car- 
cere (Saint Peter in Prison). 

At one side was an attendant with a light. 
He led the way down the stairway into a 
very gloomy looking room. This is called 
the upper prison. From this room there is 
an irregular stairway leading to the room 
below, which is called the lower prison. 
This one is still more gloomy and repulsive 
than the one above. The upper chamber is 
built of tufa, the lower one is partly built of 
tufa and is partly hollowed out of the solid 
rock. Originally the lower chamber was ac- 
cessible only through a hole in the ceiling. 
Through this hole those condemned to the 
lower prison were thrust and were left down 
there in a place as black as night to await 
the pleasure of their conquerors. In former 
times only those condemned to death were 
put in the lower prison. 

The prisons are quite old. In them two 
Roman decemvirs committed suicide in 449 
B. C; in them Manlius, the brave opponent 
of the Gauls, was put in 382 B. C; in them 
Jugurtha, king of Numidia, was put in 104 
B. C. and starved to death by Marius his 
conqueror; in them Julius Caesar thrust Ver- 
cingetorix, the brave defender of Gallic in- 
dependence, and had him put to death; and 
in them Simon Bar Gioras, the last defender 
of Jerusalem, suffered during the triumph of 
Titus. 

There is not much to be seen in the pris- 
ons. The attendant shows the place where 
the cords were fastened in the wall when 
the Catiline conspirators were strangled. It 
is indeed a gloomy place, and the recollec- 
tions that crowd upon one as he stands 
there with only a poor candle to light it 
make it still more gloomy. He cannot help 
feeling that at some time in its history 
blood must have stained every inch of it, 
and human blood at that. He shudders in- 
voluntarily as he thinks of all this, but at 
the same time his heart goes out in grati- 



32- 



Brethren s Family Almanac. 



tude to God that such tragedies are no more 
enacted in it. The coming of the One who 
brought a gospel of peace has changed all 
that, and we cannot feel too thankful that it 
has been our lot to live when we have such 
great advantages and liberties. 

At the top of the stairway which leads to 
the lower prison is a spot on the wall which 
is covered by an iron network. They say it 
is the profile of St. Peter made when the 
rude jailer bumped his head against the wall. 
I took a good long look at the place, but 
knew no more of the appearance of Peter's 
face than before. It must take a strong im- 
agination to make a face out of the uneven 
rock. When descending the faithful Cath- 
olics kiss this place on the wall, much as I 
have seen them kiss the toe of the bronze 
statue of Peter in St. Peter's Cathedral. 

It cannot be definitely decided whether 
Peter ever was in Rome or not. Some say 
he was and some say he was not. The 
Catholics, as a matter of course, hold that 
he was there. According to their way of 
thinking, he was the first pope. And if 
they were once to say that he was not there 
their whole line of succession would amount 
to nothing. It is possible that he was there, 
and if he was he might have been put in 
this very prison. But this is all conjecture, 
for all the early records are silent on this 
point. 

In the lower prison is a spring which is 
said to contain very good water. Tradition 
says that the spring of water gushed forth 
miraculously to baptize the jailers of Peter 
and Paul — Processus and Martinianus — after 
they had been converted. The tradition al- 
so says that Peter and Paul had been chained 
to a pillar nine months, and that the spring 
was due to the prayer of St. Peter. 

If we had no books and if we knew noth- 
ing of the past except as it is told us by 
these dealers in traditions, we might believe 
some of the things they want us to; but 
when history says there was a fountain in 
the lower chamber when Jugurtha was there, 



more than a hundred years before Christ, it 
is impossible to believe that its existence is 
due to the prayer of St. Peter. We know 
all this and are not tempted to believe any 
part of the story about Peter and the mirac- 
ulous origin of the spring. But the great 
majority of those who go there to worship 
do not know anything of any account about 
history, and so are the easy dupes of those 
who tell the story. 

And then too the story of the jailer. Our 
Bible tells us that Paul and Silas were cast 
into prison, that they sang and prayed at 
midnight in the prison, that an earthquake 
came and the prison doors were opened, 
that it was Paul and Silas who "spake unto 
him the word of the Lord, and to all that 
were in his house," and that they baptized 
him. And all this took place a long dis- 
tance from Rome. 

We were glad to get out into the bright 
light of the sun again; but somehow the 
horror of the place clings to one long after 
he has left it. He wonders whether Paul, 
or any other follower of our Master, was ev- 
er thrown into this prison, whether Paul and 
Silas were in such a dungeon when they 
prayed and sang. To think of being shut 
up in such a damp hole, where not a ray of 
sunlight ever penetrates! What faith one 
must have not to despond, not to think he 
has made a mistake when he is placed in 
such a position! Seeing these prisons make 
us realize something of what men had to 
suffer long ago for the sake of the truth, and 
it makes us feel deeply thankful to our Fa- 
ther that our lot has been cast in a land 
where we have none of these things to fear.

CASTOR OIL. 



If at any time it becomes necessary for 
you to take castor oil, ask the clerk to give 
it to you in a glass of soda water. Use with 
it any kind of flavor desired. In this way 
it may be taken very pleasantly.

HISTORICAL SKETCH OF THE DRY CREEK 
CHURCH, LINN CO., IOWA. 



Early in the spring of 1854, Bro. T. G. 
Snyder and family left their home in Blair 
County, Pennsylvania, and emigrated to 
what was then known as the "Far West."^ 

After a long and tedious journey they ar- 
rived in Linn County, Iowa, April 16, 1854. 
Bro. Snyder, then a deacon, and his wife 
were the first members in the County at that 
early day. The second family of members 
was that of Eld. Jacob O. Waters, who emi- 




DRY CREEK CHURCH. 

The First Meetinghouse Built by the Brethren in Iowa, 

grated from the Conemaugh congregation, 
Cambria Co., Pa., in the spring of 1856. 
Within a few months some ten or twelve 
members were located in this vicinity, and 
Eld. Wagner, of Ohio, assisted Eld., Waters 
to organize what is now known as the Dry 
Creek church. 

In the fall of 1856 this little congregation 
held their first love feast in Bro. T. G. Sny- 
der's barn. A few brethren from Waterloo 
and elsewhere were present on this occasion, 
and about twenty enjoyed a very pleasant 
feast together. At this time a choice was 
held for a speaker, which resulted in calling 
Bro. Snyder to the ministry. 

Two years later this little band of Breth- 
ren gained strength enough to build, for 
worship, our first meetinghouse in the State 



1858. 



of Iowa. This house is thirty by forty feet 
in size, and is still in a good state of preser- 
vation, though it plainly shows the marks of 
age. 

As this country ►^ecame more thickly set- 
tled, the church grew in numbers. It was 
here that the Quinter and McConnell debate 
was held in 1867, which resulted in the en- 
tire overthrow of the Disciple church in this 
vicinity. The house in which the debate 
was held has long since been torn away. A 
dim outline of the foundation is all that 
marks the place where once stood a flour- 
ishing church. Many were added 
to the Brethren church after the 
debate, and ever since they have 
had a strong hold in this commu- 
nity. 

Ministers elected up to the 
time when our Old Order Breth- 
ren withdrew, were, Jonathan 
Keys, J. C. Miller, Solomon Sta- 
my and Martin Boyd. Those 
moving into our district were John 
Filmore, Moses Rogers, John 
Veach, Daniel Holsinger and 
Abram Stamy. Those who went 
with the Old Order Brethren were 
Daniel Holsinger, Solomon Sta- 
my, Martin Boyd and J. C. Miller, who took 
with them nearly sixty members. To-day 
there remain only about twenty of the orig- 
inal number who withdrew. 

The loyal part of the church now have a 
membership of about one hundred, and have 
three houses of worship, two in the country 
and one in the city of Cedar Rapids. The 
latter was the outgrowth of the Annual 
Meeting held there in the spring of 1892. 

Our ministerial force consists of elders T. 
G. Snyder and S. C. Miller; ministers in sec- 
ond degree, M. M. Sherrick and D. W. Mil- 
ler; in first degree, J. K. Miller. Our dea- 
cons are, S. Bock, D. Albaugh, J. Wilson, J. 
B. Miller, Geo. Rodgers, T. C. Martin, Geo. 
Hagerman, W. D. Tisdale and L. D. Bosser- 
man.

Brethreris Family Alfnanac, 



The church has passed through some un- 
pleasant periods and has had her share of 
trials and difficulties to encounter, but un- 
der the blessings of God she is still moving 
on Zionward. May her borders enlarge, 
and many souls be trained, cultured and de- 
veloped for the world to come, is our prayer. 

J. K. Miller. 



USEFUL HINTS. 



— Don't allow any oily waste or rags to be 
left about the floor. They are sometimes 
self-igniting. 

— If troubled with headache, try the simul- 
taneous application of hot water to the feet 
and back of the neck. 

— Asthma may be greatly relieved by 
soaking blotting or tissue paper in strong 
saltpeter water; dry it, then burn it at night 
in the sleeping room. 

— Lemons are used for soap in many coun- 
tries where they grow. When the men and 
women of the East Indies want to wash 
their hands they squeeze the juice of a lemon 
over them briskly in water until they are 
clean. 

— If a poison has been accidentally swal- 
lowed, instantly drink a pint of warm water 
in which has been stirred a teaspoonful of 
salt and one or two of mustard. A half- 
glass of sweet oil will render many poisons 
harmless. 

— There are many simple and effective 
disinfectants, among which are: Coffee 
pounded and burned on an iron plate, sugar 
burned on hot coals, vinegar boiled with 
myrrh and sprinkled on the floor and fur- 
niture of a sick room. 

— If the eyes are tired and inflamed from 
loss of sleep, by sitting up late or long trav- 
el, apply in the morning soft white linen, 
dripping with hot water — as hot as you can 
bear it — laying the cloth upon the lids. You 
will feel the eyes strong and free from pain 
or distress in half an hour. 



— This is one of those simple things 
which few people know of. If you are in a 
Pullman car, get a pillow from the porter, 
put it on your lap, and place your writing 
materials on it. The elasticity of the pillow 
will insure smoothness. Where a pillow can- 
not be obtained use your coat. 

— Knives should never be put into hot 
water, which injures them, first by loosening 
the handles, and next by spoiling the tem- 
per of the steel. Wipe them first with a 
damp cloth and then rub on a smooth board 
which has been previously rubbed with a 
scouring brick or knife powder. 

— To destroy flies, boil the parings of po- 
tatoes in a little water for an hour. Skim 
them out and boil the water down to a few 
tablespoonfuls. Sweeten with molasses 
and turn into plates. It is a deadly poison. 
Another method is to steep quassia chips to 
a strong decoction, sweeten, and proceed as 
above. 

— Little red ants cannot travel over wool 
or rag carpet. Cover the shelf in a closet or 
pantry with flannel, set whatever you wish 
to keep from the ants on it, and they will 
at once disappear. They maybe caught al- 
so in sponges, into which sugar has been 
sprinkled; then the sponge should be 
dropped into hot water. 

— When you feel the pricking pain on the 
eyelid which announces the coming of a sty, 
use as an application very strong black tea, 
or simply the tea leaves, moisten with a little 
water, put in a small bag of muslin and lay 
over the eyelid. Moisten again as it dries. 
This, if used before the sty gets well under 
way, will generally drive it away. 

— When putting in the bread, the oven 
should be hot enough to hold the hand in 
and coant twenty rather quick. Care must 
be taken with the fire, to keep the heat 
steady, allowing it to gradually die away 
toward the last of the baking, and this is the 
best time to set in your rolls, as a more 
moderate fire is necessary for them.

— If husking corn causes your hands to 
crack, wash with castile soap in the evening, 
and fill the cracks with coach varnish, and 
they will heal at once. The varnish may be 
placed in the cracks by means of a broom- 
straw. 

— In washing grained woodwork use clear 
water or cold tea. Where there are finger 
marks to be removed, such as around the 
door-knob or on the window sill, a little fine 
soap can be used, but only just enough to 
do the work, for soap should be used for this 
work only on very rare occasions, and am- 
monia never used. 

— Nothing in the feminine make-up is so 
hard to manage as the shoe. A lady who 
has given the matter attention says that one 
of the best ways to keep shoes looking well 
is to change them often and to never wear 
out-of-door shoes indoors. It is wearing the 
same shoes both indoors and out that makes 
them look shabby so soon. 

— The tendency of table salt to pack to- 
gether in cruets and containers may be en 
tirely overcome by thoroughly drying the 
salt and intimately mingling with it a small 
percentage of dry corn starch and arrow- 
root. From eight to ten per cent, is amply 
sufficient for the most humid atmosphere, 
while a much less percentage of the starch 
is sufficient for ordinary use. 

— Few people realize the importance of 
pure commercial glycerine, and how it can 
be used and made available for purposes 
where no substitute is found that will take . 
its place. As a dressing for ladies' shoes, 
nothing equals it, making the leather soft 
and pliable without soiling the garments in 
contact. As a face lotion, oatmeal, made in 
paste, with glycerine two parts, water one 
part, and applied to the face at night, with 
a mask worn over, will give in a short time, 
if faithfully pursued, a youthful appearance 
to the skin. As a dressing in the bath, two 
quarts of water with two ounces of 
glycerine, scented with rose, which will 



impart a final freshness and delicacy to 
the skin. For diseased and inflamed gums, 
two parts of golden seal, one part of 
powdered burnt alum and two parts of gly- 
cerine, made in paste and rubbed on the 
gums and around the teeth at night strength- 
ens and restores the gums to health, provided 
no tartar is present to cause the disease, 
which must be removed first before apply- 
ing. — Scientific Am,erican,
